“I'm with the Alliance for Contraception in Cats & Dogs, the nonprofit organization referenced in the article. Our organization is focused on advancing non-surgical methods of sterilization for cats and dogs. Any readers interested in learning more about our work and this field can find us at www.acc-d.org (we also have a page specifically about Esterilsol/"zeutering" at www.acc-d.org/Esterilsol). And you're welcome to contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!”
“The search for non-surgical alternatives "spay" and "neuter" surgeries has been going on for decades, with a more concentrated and coordinated effort initiated in 2000 when the Alliance for Contraception in Cats & Dogs was formed by three research scientists. Since then, ACC&D (www.acc-d.org) has played a lead role in advocating for and directing research as well as providing scientifically sound information to stakeholders in animal welfare, animal health, and public health.
Another leader in this field is the Found Animals Foundation which operates the Michelson Prize and Grants in Reproductive Biology. With a $25 million prize and $50 million in available grant funds, this program is attracting new great minds to this field and making it possible for them to work to develop a single dose sterilant for male and female cats and dogs.

We at ACC&D encourage those interested in this field to learn more about current advances and the science behind them. Thank you!”
